By way of introduction, here is Robin Goldblum’s bio:
Robin Goldblum has had her nose stuck in a book for as long as she can remember, and crafting words in to stories followed.
During her formative years, she won a National Scholastics Award and had the honor of reading her story at the Library of Congress.
As the editor of her college literary magazine, she found organizing writers to be much like wrangling wendigos!
Robin had to take a difficult break from writing as she fought through the rigors of veterinary school and developing her career. She won for being the Best Veterinarian in Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 2019.
Yet, when the urge to write overwhelmed her, she let the words pour out of her. Today, she lives with her wonderful husband and their three beautiful, but rambunctious, children and a library packed with books.
Now that you’ve been introduced to Robin, let’s get to know her a little better.
Hello, Robin, welcome to Angel Kiss Publications and thank you for agreeing to do this interview.
Thank you for having me.
What inspired you to be a writer?
It all started with a love of reading and stories. It was very exciting when I discovered I could craft my own stories.
Is writing your full-time profession?
No, I’m a veterinarian professionally.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a kid, and I even attempted to write a novel in middle school! In college, I was the co-editor and contributed numerous pieces to the campus literary magazine.
I had to put my writing on hold during veterinary school and as I established my career, but the urge to write returned several years ago.
Have you won any awards?
I won 2 awards for short stories in high school. One of them was first place in the National Scholastic’s Writing Contest and I got to read my story at the Library of Congress.
How many books have you written?
One full length novel and one novella
Which genres do you write?
These two are western horror romance stories.
What do you find most challenging writing for these genres?
I had to do lots of research on the Wild West!
What are you working on now?
A science fiction/romance novel that jumps between the dreams of an unconscious man living in our world of the past and the woman he loves trying to protect his sleeping body in an apocalyptic world invaded by aliens.
Where do you find inspiration for your characters?
Real life heroes, characters in books, movies and TV, and a little bit of myself.
What has been your most rewarding experience since publishing your work? Holding my printed book that I’d worked so hard on for so many years in my hands.
What advice would you give to authors just starting out?
Just keep plugging away. It is so much work to write a book, but it is so satisfying once you get to the end.
Is there anything else you’d like your readers to know about you?
As well as being a writer, I adore being a veterinarian. I won Best Veterinarian in Bucks County, Pa.
What message are you sharing in your books?
Keep away from wendigos!
What are your favorite books?
So many! The Stand by Stephen King, Watchers by Dean Koontz, Star Trek: TNG- Imzadi by Peter David, My Life by Golda Meir, Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and more!
If you could create an author’s group with writers from any time period, who would you invite?
Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, Robin McKinley, Peter Beagle, Mary Shelley
Who has influenced your writing the most?
Dean Koontz, because he started me on my love of horror books. I love his writing style of switching between different characters to tell the story.
When you’re not writing where can we find you?
Playing with my children.
A movie producer wants to turn your book into a movie, and you get to make a cameo. What would you do in the movie?
I want to be a wendigo!
An elf named 12-25 approaches you. He’s sneezing, wheezing, coughing and there’s a strange tattoo of a snoring dog on his cheek. What do you do?
I feel like this is a trick or inside question that is going over my head, but I’ll roll with it. I’d start with a physical exam.
As I am unfamiliar with the species, I’d hope the patient would fill me in on details of afflictions that would cause his clinical signs and possible remedies to treat him.
Of course, I’m a curious person and would ask about the snoring dog tattoo. I could tell this elf all about snoring dogs and ask if they have Pugs and Bulldogs where he comes from!
Do you have a website/Facebook page, etc?
On Facebook, find me at Robin Goldblum’s Books
Where can we find your books?
All of my links are available on my website, as well as the link to my free novella. The main location is on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Dangerous-Kisses-Gruesome-Bites-Romance-ebook/dp/B07VCLSHNH.
Thank you, Robin, for spending time with us and sharing your story. We wish you continued success and lots of luck!
